Book Launch of Piercing Time:  Paris After Marville and Atget

Thursday, February 13th

6:00 - 9:00 pm


Artist's Talk:

6:30 - 7:30 pm


seating is limited RSVP requested.


The City of Lights' urban history is explored in the photographic project Piercing Time.  The series examines the archive of topographic Paris made by Charles Marville between 1865 - 1877; Marville worked for both the Georges Haussman and later for the Third Republic.  In the text Marville's images are paired with Sramek's contemporary images, and we experience an unfolding of time.  Marville was charged with photographing areas slated for demolition prior to the "modernization of Paris."  In Marville's work we see the tight winding cobbled streets of Paris.  The dingy but authentic old city.  Sramek's images show the wide boulevards the city has become known for.  While the monumentality of the renovated city has become a trademark of Paris, Srramek's work and talk address questions at our ambivalence to urban change and the inevitable loss of heritage that accompanies that choice.  The book includes supporting essays by the artist and coauthors Min Kyung Lee and Shalini Le Gall.

André Kertész at Stephen Bulger Gallery: Top 10 Exhibitions to Watch

Posted By Administration, Thursday, February 6, 2014

André Kertész

Places and Things


Through February 22, 2014


Photographic master and icon André Kertész made introspective work that mirrored his persona, drew out the character of his subject, and questioned the existence of all things.  The work is profound and concise.  It is spiritual too, and each frame feels full of something undefinable. 

The exhibition includes some classics: Chez Mondrain, Paris, 1926Mondiran's Glasses and Pipe, Paris, 1926 and Fork, Paris, 1928; as well as a nice selection of graphic cityscapes, dramatic still lives and interiors, and a few never before seen late works from the Estate.  Smoke in Toronto, 1979 is an almost mirrored image of a factory and is shadow; New York [interior w/ drop cloths], 1975 is rough and haunted; and a group of SX-70 Polaroids are surreal and surprising.  


Stephen Bulger Gallery has represented the Estate of André Kertész since 2003.  The exhibition draws from various periods of Kertész's oeuvre.  The grouping represents in whole a sampling from the artist's life in Hungary through 1925, to Paris 1925-1936, and finally to new York where he lived until his death in 1985.  Together these works reveal the genius and sentiment of a man and the moments he saw that one could never articulate in words.
